I have two questions regarding the opening lines of a short story called 真夜中の王女(midnight princess)
- Is the use of でのこと just to give the impression that something is happening or taking place.
- Is the verb associated with object marker をおさめた 収める？And if so is なきがらをおさめたひつぎが a polite set phrase that means the burial casket. or is the literal meaning they want because it is a horror story therefore it would be something like corpse interned coffin.
so my interpretation is, In a kingdom a 15 year old beautiful princess passed away and her corpse interned casket was carried to the church.
